It's been nearly a year since I decided to show my face on the blog but I still feel incredibly awkward in front of the camera. Let me give you a bit of background on this photo. I'd just spent the morning with 2 friends. It's a beautiful day and we've had a rip roaring time chatting about anything and everything. I handed one of them my camera to snap a photo. Either she was possessed by a paparazzo spirit or the excitement of using a badass camera got the better of her, she managed to shoot dozens of photos in 2 minutes. There were a few of me screaming STOOOOOOOOPPP - mouth agape, wide eyed while trying to cover my face simultaneously .......... I can now empathize with celebrities when they're papped.
I was elated to nab the last turtleneck cable knit sweater from Zara. I did the victory lap around my lounge which took all of 5 seconds, high fived virtual people and let out a war cry. I never said that turning 40 meant I'd matured. The holy grail 100% cotton sweater which I’ve been searching high and low for cost a mere £26. Though it's now sold out, Uniqlo does an equally good cashmere version for £59.90. It's been getting colder by the day and a chunky turtleneck sweater couldn't have arrived at a better time.
